Ways of the People by Debbie Cross
As the final project for her Masters of Liberal Arts degree at UNCA, Debbie Cross studied the decorative arts of the Lakota Sioux and recreated objects that they would have made and used. To more fully understand the condition of the Lakota, she created each piece in this exhibit under conditions as close to the authentic as was possible. On display October 1999.

Metamorfosi by Nancy Herman
In her sculptural wall pieces Nancy Herman explores the themes of rot and decay. She found that they "are not only reminders of our mortality, but in some strange way forced me to notice the beauty of all stages of physicality." On display August-September 1999.
